Photography of John Palatinus

John Palatinus is of the pioneering physique photographers of the 1950s. Along with Lon of New York, Bruce of Los Angeles, and Bob Mizer of Athletic Model Guild, he helped create a whole new genre of male photography. He was a major influence on Robert Mapplethorpe and may be one of the last living photographers from the 1950’s golden era of physique photography.
